You may have damage to one tooth on the ring gear and was unlucky that this tooth lined up onto the pinion gear and stopped the solenoid from pulling in fully. Also, the bush in the primary housing cover may have worn and has a lip on it which can catch the shaft when it pulls in. I have got this fault a few times on elderly bikes. If the fault has cleared, I would not go looking unless it happens again. If it does, rock the bike in gear to more the ring gear and if it works straight afterwards, it is more than likely the ring gear.

Derbi gpr 125 wont start


Hi, Anonymous the starter drive/Bendix is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

I have a 93 soft tail, when i try to start it i haer a clicking noise and the bike wont turn over, i took the battery out and charged it over nite, the battery held a charge and the bike still wont start....


If u havn't checked the battery with an ohm meter, do so. If the meter reads 12.50 or higher start looking at your starter. The solinoid would click and a bad starter would nothing. You could try tapping on the starter with a small hammer while pressing the start button. If it starts or at least turns over, u need a starter.
